Notes

MOTB.0096

Notes:
Bob was patched out of Rob Bertrando. 18th Row FOB

Tape was paused between most songs in first set. No music is missing in first set. No crossfades were applied.

Tape flip at the end of "Eyes" into "Drums"

Tape flip at the very end of "Franklin's Tower" before the short "Space" that leads into "China Doll".

No SBD or other source is available for a patch at this time. It is minor, but hopefully a fix surfaces one day. The "Franklin's > Space > China Doll" is stellar.

Subject: Great sound quality for audience recording
This is a delight to listen to. My ears are very happy, as they were anticipating a lower quality AUD recording. However, this is impressive audio.

Magical version of Eyes of the World.

Thanks so much for sharing this beauty!

Subject: While excellent in parts,
especially the Terrapin etc. jam, it's also kinda rough in others. Pretty good recording.

Now Ive heard this band do some magical shit before, but he invocation of light just out of Playing before franklin's thunders in just sent me into hyperspace spontaneously! These guys are cool. He he...
OK, I do have to throw 5 bright morning stars on this, and Ive never bothered before.

"It's funny though, I get a stronger smell of cigarettes than I do of DOPE. O-oh my."--Female concertgoer before the start of Candyman

Well this has always been one of my favorite AUDs from 1977. The sound is just amazing here. Thanks for the upgrade. Each song is uniquely and perfectly played. Love the Lazy Lightning>Supplication and Candyman. The whole second set is just Acapulco gold.
Reviewer: Wally Gator - - May 29, 2011
Subject: Great show
Although the Bertrando recording is louder, this recording is more clear but you'll need to turn it up more, coming from my $49 speaker anyway. Actually, I like the first set of the Bertrando recording and this second set. Rating 4.51
Reviewer: Smerdyakov - - November 19, 2010
Subject: Another Great '77
Only on AUD and spectacular!!
This show delivers from top to bottom.
The energy level is through the roof.
What can I really say? It's as sick as it looks,
if not more so. Break off the volume knob!!!!
Reviewer: enardi - - February 2, 2010
Subject: Underrated
I think that alot of people forget about this show becuase it is only circulating as an aud, however this is a very high quality recording. Lazy Lightning>Supplication was the highlight of the first set for me which was solid 77'. the second set is where this show really shines. Estimated>eyes is great, as well is the terrapin>playin>franklins. Finally china doll>NFA>playin finishes the show in fantastic fashion. Get this show

Subject: Fabulous Forum
Man, this is a totally killer show. First of all, let me just say that in my opinion this has got to be one of the very, very best 77's (which I know is no small claim). First set is quality (e.g., FOTD, Music), but not suprisingly it is the second set that is really spectacular. Highlights include Estimated>Eyes, Franklin's(the transition from Playin' is killer) and a Cornell-esqe NFA (albiet with a slightly faster tempo). Lots and lots of other great stuff to enjoy as well!!

Subject: What's Not To Love?
...well, besides the talkers in the first set.
Anytime you hear "Spring 77" and "MOTB" in the same breath, you know your day has just improved. The only other source, another AUD, is outstanding but the MOTB folks have kicked it up a notch here. Great work for a great show. Typical Spring 77 performance w/ yet another roof being blown off. I've said it before and I'll say it again: we are some spoiled kids around here.
